Cassia Heights is a 56 unit family development consisting of 4 two-story garden style apartment buildings and a centrally located, single story community building. The largest structure is built over a partially subterranean parking garage. The 2.63 acre site is adjacent to a steep canyon with environmentally sensitive open space and presented significant design challenges to mitigate environmental and fire set-back requirements.
The project is centrally located along a major transportation corridor and is very close to the commercial/industrial hub of coastal North San Diego County. Amenities include a tot lot and open grass areas, a pool, and a laundry facilities. Open spaces are placed and sized to allow for play by both young and older children all within eyesight of the units for parental supervision.
The common building provides space for a management office, meetings and homework clubs. A computer learning center/homework lab in the common building is available to all residents. A photovoltaic system provides partial power for the community building.
